ECEAP (Early Childhood Education Assistance Program)

Valley View serves approximately 200 families in the state-funded ECEAP early learning program.  An additional ECEAP site based at Mount Rainier High School serves 36 families.

ECEAP staff are dedicated to creating a center of excellence so that participating children will enter kindergarten with the cognitive, language and literacy skills that will provide the foundation they need for reading and school success. Our preschool teachers and instructional assistants participate in professional development workshops, receive individual coaching and mentoring, utilize the Opening the World of Learning literacy curriculum, and integrate research-based instructional strategies. Every teacher and instructional assistant is a member of a professional learning community that meets twice a month. 

All ECEAP families partner directly with an on-site family support worker. Together they establish family goals, identify needed resources, and plan for the success of the student and family. Over 70% of our children come from families where English is not the primary language. Bilingual assistants support the children in their classrooms while interpreter services are available to the families in 18 different languages.

Apply to ECEAP

Please fill out this ECEAP application. Eligibility is based on your child's age and your family income. We are required to first serve families with the greatest need. The information on this application will help us know your family. Please complete all the questions. The information on your application is confidential and used only to determine eligibility and placement on the waitlist.

Special Education

We have four early childhood classrooms for children with developmental delays. In addition to that, two of our classes house both special education and ECEAP preschool children. Children flow from one room to the next depending on their needs and successes. We also have a speech language pathologist and a physical therapist on site, and we provide extended-day programs for children with autism.

We are proud of the work we do, knowing every day we make a positive difference in the lives of our families.

Accessing Services:

Childfind is a service for children under age 5 who may have a disability. If you have concerns about your young child's learning, hearing, language, speech, vision, movement, or health, Childfind provides free developmental screening. Interpreters are available.
